    Pros

    Big opportunities to grow in a sector where regulation changes is high

    Regulation on specific aspects takes too long to be approved

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Catalana Occidente full-time

    Pros

    Great people, always willing to help; good conditions; easy and open communication with partners and superiors. Relative flexibility (1 hour in the morning, to be compensated at the end).

    Cons

    Very monotonous work; lack of motivation since there are not personal goals. There is no way to measure or see your output/ impact in the society ( the contrary is true: you try to pay less to the injured which is not a thing you feel proud of, unless you know they are trying to fool you, which also happens very often).

    if you don´t love the insurance field (which I do not).

    I worked at Catalana Occidente full-time

    Pros

    The main offices, located in front of the Congress, with great views. The people who work there are usually friendly and amicable.

    Cons

    Really fixed hierarchy. Too much bureaucracy for getting anything done. You need to speak to three different departments for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the bureaucracy. It's people who generate value, not paper trails.
